The Children’s Hospital Outpatient Center project located within Children’s Hospital at Erlanger in Chattanooga, Tennessee has recently been completed.
Serving as the hospital’s new entrance, the new three-story, 90,000-square-foot center houses 72 rooms for an array of services including pediatric imaging, lab services, pharmacy and pediatric specialty clinics such as cardiology, neurology, genetics, gastroenterology and orthopedics. Ground was broken on the center in June 2017.
The center was designed and built to be a family friendly facility that would engage children by distracting them from their illnesses, as well as meeting the complex needs of families and physicians. CHOC is the region’s only certified pediatric genetics counseling; centers for child psychology, physical therapy and hypertension and the H.E.A.L. (Healthy Eating Active Lifestyle) Center to address pediatric obesity.
Throughout the center patients and guests will experience discovery zones, local artwork, drawing stations, train displays, a café and an outdoor patio. The project team included HKS and McCarthy Building Companies, Inc.
